Emergency Rental Assistance

Money Emergency Rental Assistance

Emergency Rental Assistance for individuals facing a hardship or crisis, in order to prevent homelessness.


The Emergency Rental Assistance, Prevention and Stabilization Program is part of NMCS’s Case Management family of services and provides one-time financial support primarily to Novato residents who are at risk of losing their stable housing or who need help with securing a deposit for housing.

The program is open to all persons without discrimination based on race, creed, color, religion, sexual orientation, age, national origin, disability or family status.

The Emergency Rental Assistance, Prevention and Stabilization Program serves as a last resource for applicants, recognizing that an accident, job loss or other unforeseen crisis can impact any household, placing them at risk for homelessness. This resource is critical in supporting our community.

The goal of the Rental Assistance, Prevention and Stabilization Program is to prevent homelessness: providing support through case management, planning, and linking applicants to resources to support towards self-sufficiency. Case management staff will review eligibility with participants.
